The Lyrics

Another tribute to an Indiana town, which in this case serves as the subject only because of its name. "Brazil", "Peru", "New Market", "New Moscow", "Galveston", and "Monticello" are all real Indiana towns.
Brazil, Peru,
Ooh, I wanna take ya,
To New Moscow, New Market,
C'mon Harley mama,
Galveston, Monticello,
Baby, why don't we go...
To Main Street, by Frank's Lock & Key,
There's a place called Kokomo,
That's where ya wanna go,
To get away from the grind.
Tractors in the fields,
Farmers perfecting their soybean yields,
We'll be fallin' in love,
To the rhythm of a banjo quartet,
Way up in Kokomo.

We'll get there fast,
If we take 31 (Highway),
That's where you won't have any fun,
Way up in Kokomo.

A pig, a foal, a 4-H festival.
We'll go out to see,
Check out the county fair history,
Go to the courthouse at noon,
Watch the trial of the livestock thief...
We'll go out to snack,
At Fred & Wilma's Burger Shack,
That gleaming look in your eye,
Is from a case of viral meningitis,
Caught up in Kokomo.


A knife, a fork, I wanna eat some pork.
